Why is my printed dust cover off by 1/4 to 1/2 inches?
BookSmart

Ok thanks.  They felt it was just a bad cover fold problem.  I reprinted it once again and it is still the same.  I guess I will just upload my last update and go with it.  Thanks again for your response.

Why is my printed dust cover off by 1/4 to 1/2 inches?

I just received my draft copy of a book I have been working on for a couple of years.  I chose a cover from the layouts provided in the blurb software.  It has a full bleed photo on the front and the back cover and the flaps have 2 small photos at the top.  The front and back covers appear to be too large by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch on either side forcing their way into the area of the front and back inside flaps.  I had used photoshop to match the color in the front photo but it is not exactly the same despite looking that way on the screen.  So it looks funny not like it bleeds. 

Why is this happening and is there any way to avoid it.  It really doesn’t look very professional.

Thanks in advance for any help.
